Konig Free To Air Digital Satellite Receiver with Remote Control BNIB
This is a Free to Air digital satellite receiver manufactured by Konig. This receiver allows reception of the vast amount of free satellite channels currently available for anyone to watch and even better all for free. This receiver is feature packed for it's price, it works similarly to a Freeview box except reception is via satellite. Free to Air means transmissions that do not have any encryption. Whilst Sky do encrypt a lot of their channels they don't encrypt them all. On the Sky satellite, Astra 2D, there are lots more transmissions other than Sky . If you have a satellite dish or connection point in your home then connect in this box and see what you can receive. You will be amazed at what's available! This receiver is suitable for reception of the new BBC and ITV Freesat service. All of the Freesat transmissions are Free To Air and can be received with this box. The only exceptions are the HD channels, this is an SD, standard definition, receiver.

I wouldn't know where to start telling you about the features this box has and at the price we are selling it for it's an absolute bargain and way better than any price on the high street for this feature packed model. If you are interested in a quick story then I have taken one home and connected into my satellite dish which is aligned on Astra 2D where the Sky service comes from. I have carried out a blind scan which is where the receiver searches every frequency and polarity and not just the transponder list in it's memory. The result of the scan was an impressive 762 services found. Now a fair number of them are Sky encrypted, my estimation about 200 of them but all the rest are free to watch! By carrying out a blind scan you will find everything the satellite is currently transmitting, this will include all scheduled transmissions, test transmissions and temporary feed transmissions. These are used by broadcasters for feeds, such as news feeds back to the broadcasters headquarters.
There are far too many channels found to list here but on Astra 2D you get all of the Freesat channels including all BBC and ITV regional services in the UK. CH4 and CH5 are also available as well as all of the BBC channels with regional variations. For example watch BBC Scotland when you are in London or ITV London when you are in Belfast. You will also discover Horror channels, Film 4, Gay Network, Music channels, Wine channel, Asian channels, Wedding channel, Russia TV, Many Asian channels, Shopping channels and loads more. This receiver is also suitable for Free to Air transmissions from all of the European satellites such as Hotbird, Eurobird etc. If you are interested in foreign television in the UK, such as Polish, French, German, Spanish etc, then this is the box for you.This receiver supports digital teletext, has an electronic programme guide, has full Diseqc control, two scart sockets, digital audio out, and will store up to 4000 channels. For a small box it has an impressive feauture list and an array of rear panel connections as follows:
0/12V 100mA - For connection to an older LNB switch, 12V enables the switch to select another LNB
Video - Composite video output for connection to televisions without a scart socket
Audio R - Right channel audio output to feed to a television or amplifier
Audio L - Right channel audio output to feed to a television or amplifier
SPDIF - Digital audio output, can be connected to a Dolby Digital amplifier

LNB OUT - Satellite feed to a slave receiver
Receiver dimensions W X D X H: 260mm X 160mm X 50mm

Look at the photographs for a close up view of each connector. An RF modulator is fitted which can be programmed to any frequency, (21-69), for distribution to more than one television. The RF modulator also permits connection to older televisions without an AV input.
It has one other feature which I found incredibly useful. A find facility to locate channels in the list quickly. You can type in some characters like in a text message and the receiver will display channels that match the text you enter. This is so useful! Have a look at the attached video which shows the receiver coming on from standby, the menu structure and a search using the "find" button for Film 4.
Use of this receiver is not just limited to your home. It can be taken on holiday with you if you have a satellite dish and is also especially useful for caravaners and people who live in poor terrestrial reception areas. It is also suitable for use outside of the UK to receive British television services. You may need a large dish depending on your location.
The receivers memory is programmed with all the currently available European satellites. Alignment of a dish on the appropriate satellite will give you all the appropriate channels.
